A WM I visited today had the Droid factory 2-packs for only $3 each, several Naboo yellow guys and Kitiks for $3 each, and the Lando/Stormtrooper comics pack for... $3 each!

This was in Hammond, LA, which is about a half hour east of Baton Rouge.  They've had big clearances like this in the past too.

DB, if you stock up on any of those droid packs, let me know.  I'd love more of the droids if you've got extras.

Looks like WM is having a "sale" on SW this week complete with Sunday circular - even though no pricing has changed.  I have a feeling they're going to be raising their prices pretty quick.

I think this is just a sale price for this week, though I've sent complaints about the pricing to two seperate folks at corporate and on their TRU survey.  If others are complaining, maybe they will make a longer term price change?

If we're lucky, WM will maybe force the hands of the others to lower prices.  I'd be content with just TRU coming down anyway.  Target, they're a greedy one I've noticed and jack prices up regardless of competition, so we'll see.

Well the best way to get their attention is to just stop buying from them...7.99 is just way way way to much..
